Half-past two, the bell rang-
Sounds of joy echoed throughout;
But I was stuck in life’s fang.
Chided by the Devil, I consciously fell
To the scraping ground, limped all about;
Heaven never looked so sickly swell.
I dwindled in His abrasive clutches,
Savoring eternal doom-procreated sprout;
Perseverance has left, itself flushes.
Acceptance prevailed, the perpetual longing
For what perception once was, now a deserted drought;
“Rock bottom hath come,” says myself unfolding.
